Precision Printing has become the first company in the UK to invest in a new Scodix Ultra 101 digital enhancement press.
Purchased through Friedheim International, the new machine will replace two first generation S74 Scodix models and enable Precision to add digital foiling to its expansive range of services.
Chief executive Gary Peeling said that the device is five times faster than the previous models, and this will enable the company to address a rising demand for its services.
‘We have operated two older Scodix machines for over five years, and as enhanced products are popular across all three of our operating sectors, the new machine will offer higher productivity to deal with the demand,’ said Gary.
‘The new platform is five times faster than the previous generation, allowing use to deal with the 80% growth we are seeing in Where the Trade Buys. It also offers the ability to provide digital foil enhancement with outstanding results that will support high value products and opportunities for our clients.’
The Scodix Ultra 101 has been installed at Precision’s fully automated production hub in London, where it is now running alongside two offset and eight digital sheetfeed presses. The Scodix sits alongside laminating and flood UV enhancement, prior to cutting, creasing and full bindery.
